I had this bug sitting on my deck for hours this weekend. Can you identify it? Date was 5/18/14 in the Chicago area.
The colors were beautiful but I’ve never seen anything like it before. It was approx. 2.5″-3″ long.
This beautiful species of Caterpillar Hunter is known as a Fiery Searcher. We wish you had sent a higher resolution image.
